Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this reality show takes place in a tattoo parlor, so if you don't want your kids to be fascinated by body art, this isn't for them. (That said, it might be a reality check for anyone who wants a tattoo: The needle is visible, and clients sometimes wince in pain during the process.) Breasts, rear ends, and other sensitive areas appear, though key areas are blurred onscreen. Expect some skimpy outfits and innuendo-laden conversations; some tattoo artists also speak frankly about sex and the pursuit of sex, as well as their general admiration of bodies. Parlor workers flirt, date, play, and argue with one another regularly; some indulge in reckless behavior.
Some blurred nudity during tattoo application, as well as tight/skimpy clothing. Heavy flirting, hugging, talk about sex and attraction.
Tattoo needles are seen piercing skin, but there's no blood.
Regular bleeped profanity.
Shows people doing jobs that they take seriously and enjoy. But some regulars exhibit poor role model behavior, like driving too fast and procrastinating.
Promotes Hart & Huntington shop and Carey Hart as a professional athlete.
